Grilled Chicken with Lemon-Basil Pasta

Another delicious recipe from P.Dub - is that surprising in the least bit?! 
What you need:
  • 4 grilled chicken breasts, sliced
  • 1 lb. penne, cooked al dente, reserve 1 cup pasta water
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 3 whole lemons, juiced
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup half-and-half
  • 1 1/2 cup Parmesan
  • Salt and pepper
  • 20 Basil leaves, chopped
  1. Melt butter over medium heat.
  2. Add lemon juice, heavy cream, and half-and-half. Whisk until hot and bubbly.
  3. Add cheese and salt and pepper, to taste. Stir until cheese is melted.
  4. Add to cooked pasta and toss to coat. Add reserved pasta water, little by little, if needed to loosen up.
  5. Add half the basil.
  6. Serve pasta topped with chicken and more basil.
